August Ticket Giveaway: How Many Hits?

It’s time again for a ticket giveaway, courtesy of seatcrew.com, the secondary ticket marketplace with no fees.  This time you have a chance to win two tickets to the Mets game against the Colorado Rockies on Monday August 20th.   Right now that’s lined up to be an R.A. Dickey start.

 

To qualify, you must register an account on seatcrew.com and follow them, and me, on Twitter and then correctly guess the answer to the following question.

 

How many hits will the Mets get against  Ben Sheets and the Braves this Sunday night?

 

The closest answer that is equal to or greater than the actual amount of hits the Mets get wins the prize.  This means it’s better to be optimistic and go over than have the Mets outhit your guess.  In case of a tie, tell me how many of those hits will be David Wright’s.

 

Answers must be submitted before first pitch on Sunday night, August 12th to
contest@ceetar.com

Mets Ticket Giveaway!

It’s time for May’s Mets Ticket Giveaway, courtesy of Seatcrew.com.  This week Optimistic Mets Fan is giving away two tickets to a game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday May 15th.

 

Seatcrew.com is a secondary ticket market similar to Stubhub with an important twist: There are no ticket fees for the buyer or the seller, which means lower prices on tickets for you.  For a full write-up, and a list of which games you have a chance to win tickets to, check out my post from the offseason.

 

So here’s what you have to do to win.  First, you need to have a registered Seatcrew account. All you need is an email address.  Second, you need to predict how many hits David Wright will hit against the Phillies in three games.  This means you need to have your guess in to contest@ceetar.com before Wright’s first AB tonight.  There is one catch: Since this is an Optimistic fan site, we’ll be playing by reverse Price is Right rules.  This means the person closest to the total without going UNDER is the winning entry.  If you guess 4 hits, and David Wright hits 5, your guess is ineligible.  Be Optimistic.

 

If it helps, the Phillies are scheduled to start Roy Halladay, Joe Blanton, and Cliff Lee returning from the DL.  My personal guess would be 6 hits, with 2 home runs if you’d like to use that as a guide.  Good Luck!

And The Winner Is…

The Mets!

 

oh wait, that’s tomorrow.

 

Arthur Pesner wins the seatcrew.com tickets to next Wednesday’s game against the Nationals with the correct answer of Ron Taylor in 1970 in relief of Tom Seaver who took a no decision. Ron Taylor is the first Mets pitcher to record a win on Opening Day!

 

Thanks for playing, check back again for tickets to the Brewers gamae on May 15th.

Mets Ticket Giveaway!

Thanks to Seatcrew.com, Optimistic Mets Fan has two tickets for you to win to next Wednesday’s game, April 11th, against the Nationals.

 

Seatcrew.com is a secondary ticket market similar to Stubhub with an important twist: There are no ticket fees for the buyer or the seller, which means lower prices on tickets for you.  For a full write-up, and a list of which games you have a chance to win tickets to, check out my post from the offseason.

 

For the next three giveaways I’m going to ask for your predictions on certain Mets players over a 3-game series, with opposite The Price Is Right rules; the person that guesses closest without going _under_ will win.  This means if the category is David Wright hits, and you guess five and he hits six, you’re disqualified.  That’s right, I’m bribing you to be Optimistic.

 

Since this week’s contest closes at Noon on Wednesday and there are no real games to predict, I’ll ask a trivia question.  I’ll draw a random entry of all qualifying responses submitted in time to contest@ceetar.com.  Put Optimistic Mets Fan Ticket Giveaway in the subject line and the answer to the following question in the body.

 

Who was the first Met pitcher to record a win on Opening Day?

Seat Crew and Mets Ticket Giveaways

Seatcrew.com is a new secondary ticket marketplace designed to be fan friendly by eliminating ticket fees.  I know we’re all fed up with handling fees, and print at home fees and all the various ticket fees from other markets and even the original seller in most cases.  At Seatcrew the listed price is the amount you pay.

 

As a way to get their name out there and get you using their site (after all, the more sellers the better selection of seats for buyers) Optimistic Mets Fan is going to be giving away tickets courtesy of Seatcrew for four different games of the 2012 Mets season.   There will be a Brewers game on May 15th, the Rockies on August 20th, and the Phillies on September 17th.

 

First up is the Nationals on April 11th.  This is the final game of the opening homestand, and you should look for the giveaway during the week leading up to Opening Day.  Brush up on your history, because I’ll be asking an Opening Day themed trivia question in order to qualify for the tickets.

 

Seatcrew looks like the perfect mix between between Stubhub and Craigslist for ticket sales.  A comfortable and organized website, and the ability to negotiate directly with the seller in order to complete the sale and transfer in the best way possible for both parties..all without fees.  The video below will tell you everything you need to know.
